Excellent surgeon. One review said terrible bedside manner. Let's face it, his bedside manner means nothing since I am not getting in bed with him so to speak. What counts is his surgical skill and, at that he is tops.

Dr. Lee is a terrible communicator. He is constantly changing his mind and can’t give a definitive answer. He seems unsure of his ability to care for ill patients and vacillates when he is asked questions. He was bold enough to state that an appointment should not be made unless we were sure we wanted to do surgery when he wasn’t sure if he wanted to perform the surgery. Terrible bedside manner. Will have to look for another surgeon who seems more secure in his/her ability.

He saved my life after a surgical accident not caused by him. I was near death when he went to work on me. I think he's brilliant.
